Calling All Singers!Saturday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. in Hawkins Centennial Chapel 

Did you sing in ONU’s annual MESSIAH while a student? We are inviting YOU to join us for this dynamic musical event.

We will offer rehearsals on-demand via video in advance and an in-person rehearsal on Saturday of HOCO. This concert will be filmed and available to all who participate! 

This is not a formal commitment (yet!) but it will allow us to get an idea of exactly how many people may want to participate.
